Widens volunteer base at screeningsOngoing health promotion impact for athlete leaders and their fellow athletes post screeningAthletes trained and ready to engage with stakeholders & sponsors when requiredSlide3
Athlete Leaders are selected prior to a screening and trained the day before the screening
Health Heroes receive shirts and pledge badges and are assigned to a specific discipline at the screening (we have prioritised HP, SS,
& FF but it can be expanded to all disciplines)Slide4
Health Heroes then provide interactive health education at the end of the discipline where they are assigned. The education involves giving info as well as asking questions to determine level of understanding.
Finally, the athlete is asked to make a pledge to improve their health e.g. “I pledge to brush my teeth twice a day”. On doing so, the athlete receives a pledge badge.Slide5
Program can be expanded within some disciplines eg Health Promotion may have a sun safety Health Hero, a hand washing Health Hero, a hydration Health Hero etcAthlete selection is important – language, communication skills, reflect good health, positive attitude etc
